No sophomore slump for New Haven's Atkinson

Former Career High star Tanaya Atkinson was one of the better freshmen in the American Athletic Conference a season ago and the Temple guard is showing no signs of slowing down.

She is third on the Owls in scoring averaging 12.1 points per game. In conference play she is averaging 12.2 points a game, good for 15th among all AAC players. She is also 13th in the AAC in field-goal percentage (45.3).

I spoke with Temple coach Tonya Cardoza at AAC media day about Atkinson.

"(Her freshman season was) really good year for her, this year is going to be really good for her as well," Cardoza said. "There is more competition for her at practice now so that makes her go even harder. She is a special one and we are lucky to find her and get her. She is going to be key for us being successful this year."

Tonight's game will not be WTIC-1080 because of coverage of the New England Patriots so it will be broadcast on 96.5 FM.
